Dont park on the Interstate (go totrail creek exit) MORE INFO >>>


Not exactly, Bozeman's Pass, this "Bozeman Pass" is a climbing area in Rocky Canyon. Know by most as the pass, this collection of crags ranging from 5.6 - 5.13b has an abundance of sport climbing on shorter than normal walls.

High quality rock marked with pockets, crimps and solid faces,
good for begginers and experts. Those looking for the serious goods, warm-up then hit the Training Wall, those looking for a solid, yet mellow outing start at Frat Boy, Recess, or Public Service Wall.

: Limestone - Primarily Sport, All levels, Easy access (15-30 min approach), noisy due to the hi-way. A Large cluster of separated crags, 60m minimum, a 70m for a few lines. Areas can be shaded and cool during afternoon. Upper crags seems to get more sun during the day. Season: Spring, Summer, & Fall.

Getting There 

Take the interstate east out of Bozeman and turn right onto trail creek. Go under the overpass and take a left, drive to the end of the road and park near the end of the fence. From here walk on an old road west for about 200 yards, climb a wooden ladder that has a climbing access tag. Walk another 1/2 mile along old road cut out, just before the climbs you will walk past the old parking area and up to the cliffs. Fat Mans Wall is the first of the climbing spot you will encounter.

This is a short, steep, pocketed route that according to Kyle Vassilopolis is "the area's gold standard for the grade." Follow fun pockets up the steep start to a mid-height crux. Finish with the crack and a traverse left. A stick clip is recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in Montana
